Customer Review

on 18 March 2013
I have all of Stile Antico SACD releases on Harmonia Mundi. This one, like the others does not disappoint in terms of the beauty of the music, from a wonderful performance, brought to life through the medium of the SACD Surround sound. The CD stereo version, as ever sounds flat when compared to the openness of the surround sound version. The quality of the sound is superb. The music is glorious and is a superb reflection for the Eastertide period. The only piece that really 'jars' with me is Track 7, the modern setting by John McCabe, I have to skip over this whenever I play the disc (I don't do that at all with any other of Stile Antico's discs). I am sure this piece has merits but regretfully not anything that I can appreciate. The music from the tracks before and after just flow and carry you off to other places, but the McCabe piece just makes me feel uncomfortable, I just can't listen to it, try as I might, it feels as though it just does not belong. That said, this is a disc to be highly recommended. Thanks HM for releasing this as an SACD and supporting a format which means we can enjoy the music and the performance at its best!
